In a posting on Craigslist.org, Monday afternoon the “22 y/o white male, 170 lbs PERFECTLY HEALTHY!! Non-drinker” offered the organ.

“Blood type is O positive. I am the most common blood type. Willing to let my kidney for a donation of $100,000 obo plus any medical expenses,” said the poster.

The posting was still up at at least 6 p.m. Monday at http://sandiego.craigslist.org/csd/for/1018414374.html.

The young man notes that he would “Would like to sell it to someone younger preferably.  Would love to give someone extra life!!”

The posting was removed as of 8:30 am, PST. Craiglist’s list of prohibited or restricted items specifically bans  “blood, bodily fluids or body parts.”
